Penguin Group (Canada) will publish The Scotiabank Giller Prize: 15 Years of Prize-Winning Fiction in 2008 to mark the 15th Anniversary of the Giller Prize.

Penguin Group (Canada) is recognized as the country's pre-eminent publisher of literary anthologies, and on its list of critically acclaimed bestsellers, has recently published The Penguin Book of Summer Stories (edited by Alberto Manguel), The Penguin Book of Canadian Short Stories (edited by Jane Urquhart), The Penguin Book of Crime Stories (edited by Peter Robinson), and The Penguin Book of Women's Stories (edited by Lisa Moore).

To this prestigious list, Penguin now adds the most glamorous of anthologies, The Scotiabank Giller Prize: 15 Years of Prize-Winning Fiction. The book was conceived by Penguin Editorial Director Andrea Magyar, warmly embraced by Giller Prize founder Jack Rabinovitch and presented to lead sponsor Scotiabank in the summer of 2007.
